4th of July Week: Style

Fun 4th Fact: If you celebrate the Fourth of July outside the U.S., you still might see fireworks in Denmark, England, Norway, Portugal and Sweden. This is because thousands of people emigrated to the U.S. in the early 1900s. Some European celebrations on the Fourth take place near tourist destinations – to attract U.S. travelers – or near American military bases.

There are plenty of ways to rock red, white, and blue without looking like your very own personal Independence Day parade. The key is picking just one or two themed pieces. As an overly friendly cashier once commented on the items in my basket…not for use together!

In my book (to someday be called Stripes Is a Color in My Closet), you can NEVER go wrong with a Striped Boatneck Tee.

But, if for some strange reason, you’re wary of sporting too many stripes, limit them to an accessory like a Striped Sun Hat.

Or this oversized Burlap Pouch.

If you’re more of a pattern girl, Madewell has some cute Bandanas in subtly festive colors.

Gingham is also a fun alternative to stripes.

Solids, like these red wood sunglasses, are an equally bold statement.

Or rock a cute red sandal.

But don’t stop shooting for the stars…TL, BL, TR, BR, Captain America!

These star studs and stackable rings are a tiny touch of Independence bling.

And, even if you’re not into representing ‘Murica through fashion, you can still tuck a little American spirit in your bag with this Flag Flask!
